a few weeks ago i bought King Kong on blu ray. it is amazing, everything from the picture to the sound is so clear. the extra features are incredible, it is so interesting to learn how this movie was made and how much work went into making it. if you are a fan in anyway of King Kong pick it up on blu ray. it even comes with a little booklet.

Saw this at a few Conventions in the early-mid 1970s..At one I met Orville Goldner(one of the tech crew on the 1933 classic)and got a signed copy of his book The Making of King Kong..I saw it a whole slew of times on TV during 1976, after they pasted the lost footage back in ,it made the rounds again and again!

The best films I have ever seen only contain ten or fifteen worthwhile ones.” […]

Shoot First, Die Later (1974)

To view Shoot First, Die Later click here. Here’s how I’d pitch Fernando Di Leo’s Shoot First, Die Later (1974) to any of my friends: If you’d like to see a gritty Italian crime movie that evokes The French Connection (1971) and surely influenced Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, look no further than this grim […]
